              The Silent Division & Concerning One Man's War 1914-1919
               

              The Silent Division & Concerning One Man's War 1914-1919 (Hardback)

              By Burton, Ormond E.; Edited by Gray, John H.; Foreword by Pugsley, Christopher

              THE BOOK IS IN Three PARTS BIOGRAPHY OF ORMOND BURTON: This is written by David Grant an established Wellington historian and well- credentialed author, after successful careers in journalism and Secondary School teaching. PART ONE: a re-issue, unaltered, of the acclaimed The ...Silent Division - New Zealanders at the Front 1914 - 1919, first published in 1935, but now including maps and illustrations. PART TWO: issued for the first time; that part of Ormond Burton's hitherto unpublished autobiography which deals with his heroic, front-line service in The Great War, entitled Concerning One Man's War, 1914 -1919. This is a vibrant account at an individual level; arguably the finest writing by a New Zealander about that war. Edited by John H Gray, an acknowledged historian and published author, specialising in the The New Zealand Division on the Western Front.This is in no sense a book of fiction but one of facts and of the reaction of a kindly soul to his experiences as a front-line Digger. In it is to be found a truer reflection both of the grim side of the thing we call war as of its lighter and carefree aspect than is commonly found in war books. If the sense of tragedy grows deeper as the story unfolds and becomes almost overwhelming in the description of life in the trenches and of the realities of the battlefield, there yet runs through the fabric of the narrative a golden thread- a sense of beauty, of humour: and while he laments the apparent futility of war, the writer glimpses the glory of sacrifice, of the endurance of hardship and of the suffering of wounds that others may escape. To everyone who has shared in the Iliad, in which the writer took part, the vivid descriptions of the wanderings of the N.Z.E.F. will inevitably recall his own experiences, nor will the memories be all unpleasant. May it bring to its other readers a more lively appreciation of the inevitable after effects on the health, both physical and mental, of those whose lives at the fron
